Chimneyside Chats with Chef Michael Silverstein

Gather 'round the open fire for Chimneyside Chats - a monthly feature with holiday stories from our favorite artists. See what's in their stockings this year as they reminisce on Christmas memories, share their favorite recipe and more! Here's what Chef Michael Silverstein had to say: 

This time of year, nothing reminds me more of ‘home’ than the smell of fresh Latkes frying up for Hanukkah. It’s among my most treasured food memories. So, every year I get out the big cast-iron pan, and start shredding potatoes. But lately, since embracing a Keto lifestyle (and losing over 80 lbs), I had to find a solution for Latkes that cut back on the carbs, and this is it! The secret ingredient? Celery root! It ends up tasting just like potatoes, and brings me all the nostalgia I need during the Hanukkah season. Just make sure to try them with a little applesauce and sour cream on top!

And if you’re looking for a nice gift this year, make sure to order my cookbook, New Keto Cooking, where I turn diet food upside-down, and create dishes that make you forget you’re eating healthier. Happy Holidays!
